Itinerary for Northern Chilean Getaway

Sample Itinerary - subject to changes.

Day 1: Arrival
Transfer from Ovalle, La Serena, or Vicuña. The trip through the mountains to get to our first nights accomodation takes about two hours. On reaching the lodge you can bathe in the river, pick and eat exotic fruit, or relax in a hammock. In our kitchen we only use natural and fresh food to prepare you a delicious dinner. After our meal we sit on the terrace, watching the stars while drinking a glass of Chilean wine and finishing the first day of our trip.
Meals included: Dinner
Overnight at Hacienda

Day 2: Ride to Maiten
At about 9:30 am, we will prepare for exploration. Our guides acquaint you with the horses, the riding style and any safety precautions. We set off at 11:00 am after having packed all we need for our trip into the wilderness. We pass through wild plateaus and canyons, ride the endless Sierra and enjoy a picnic lunch and a Siesta. In the afternoon, we pass over heights of 2,000 meters. Crystal-clear air allow for magical views of the valleys of the Andes. This evening we will set up camp under the open sky in the oasis of the Andes called Maiten. In front of a campfire, we serve dinner. (Alternatively you are welcome to change this two-day ride for two one-day rides starting at the hacienda. Your overnight stay would be at the Hacienda in cozy beds then.)
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Overnight camping in Maiten

Day 3: Ride back to Hacienda
We continue our trip after breakfast trekking through the high plateaus surrounding the Maiten Sierra and discover extreme contrasts of nature. The sierra shines in various colors due to the minerals present in the rock.You will be fascinated by the green Algarrobo trees, cacti as high as yourself and the calm loneliness. When riding back to the Hacienda, heardsmen with their goats might cross our way. In the evening we will serve dinner in the garden.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Overnight at Hacienda

Day 4: Departure
Today is your departure day, but there is still  time today to continue your exploration of our little paradise. Swimming, sunbathing, hiking or just relaxing.
Meals included: Breakfast
